  • A 50-year-old lock design was rendered useless last week when a brief post to an internet forum revealed the lock can be popped open with a cheap plastic pen.On Sunday, bike enthusiast and network security consultant Chris Brennan described opening an expensive Kryptonite bike lock using a ballpoint pen."Your brand new U-Lock is not safe," warned Brennan in a note posted to Bike Forums.Wired News tested Brennan's claims. A brand newKryptonite Evolution 2000 was opened in seconds using a Bic pen. After cutting four small slits in the end of the pen's barrel to ease it in, the lock opened with a single twist.Brennan, 25, of San Francisco, said he successfully opened two Kryptonite locks, an Evolution 2000 and an older Kryptonite Mini lock.Subsequent posts to Bike Forums and other websites report the vulnerability applies to many of the company's cylindrical-lock products, including some from Kryptonite's vaunted New York series.

  • Another myth about social media
  • A few observations:The average social network user is 37 years old.LinkedIn, with its business focus, has a predictably high average user age; 44.The average Twitter user is 39 years old.The average Facebook user is 38 years old.The average MySpace user is 31 years old.Bebo has by far the youngest users, as witnessed earlier, with an average age of 28.On the social web, age is a factorAlthough we can’t say how this will change over time, at the moment the older generations are for one reason or another (tech savvy, interest, etc.) not using social networking sites to a large extent. This probably reflects general internet usage, but we suspect the difference is enhanced when it comes to the social media sphere where site usage tends to be more frequent and time-consuming than usual.It is also noteworthy that social media isn’t dominated by the youngest, often most tech-savvy generations, but rather by what has to be referred to as middle-aged people (although at the younger end of that spectrum).
  • New stats from Nielsen Online show that by the end of 2008, social networking had overtaken email in terms of worldwide reach. According to the study, 66.8% of Internet users across the globe accessed “member communities” last year, compared to 65.1% for email. The most popular online activities remain search and Web portals (with around 85% reach) and the websites of software manufacturers.The far-reaching study also explored a number of other trends within the social networking space. In 2008, users spent 63% more time on member communities than they did in the previous year. However, within member communities, Facebook saw growth of 566% in time spent on it by users worldwide. As has been reported elsewhere, Facebook’s fastest growth demographic is older users – the social network tacked on 12.4 million people between ages 35-49 in 2008 according to Nielsen.Some other key findings from the report:- Globally, Facebook reaches 29.9% of global Internet users, versus 22.4% for MySpace.- MySpace remains the most profitable social network, generating an estimated $1 billion in revenue versus $300 million for Facebook in 2008.- Facebook is the top social network in all countries except Germany, Brazil, and Japan (Nielsen still has MySpace as tops in US in the report, but as of January ’09, that had changed).- On Twitter, CNN, The New York Times, and BBC have the greatest reach among mainstream media companies as of late February.Overall, most of these trends aren’t surprising if you’ve been following the space, but nonetheless, tie some numbers to them. Most impressive is the rise of Facebook, who is outpacing the growth of the social networking space on the whole by nearly tenfold.
  • Are you surprised?Time to evaluate where to be but hold your horse...
  • Who doesn’t know about the “Will It Blend” series on YouTube? Created by George Write, the marketing director of Blendtec, the campaign was low cost and instantly became a hit. In the video, Tom Dickson the CEO of Blendtec, attempts to blend objects in their blender. This simple idea led to a “five-fold increase in sales”.Blendtec leveraged YouTube’s subscriber base and tried something fun and original. The campaign was a success and continues to entertain and sell.

  • Social media isn’t only about using existing websites, but sometimes creating your own. To get a better handle on consumer feedback, Starbucks did just that with “My Starbucks Idea.”The site allows users to submit suggestions to be voted on by Starbucks consumers, and the most popular suggestions are highlighted and reviewed. Starbucks then took it a step further and added an “Ideas in Action” blog that gives updates to users on the status of changes suggested.By empowering their exceptionally web savvy consumer, Starbucks strengthens their campaign to add a personal touch to coffee.
  • Embracing social media is a huge undertaking, and involves a large investment. Dell didn’t shy away from these obstacles, instead they’ve gone above and beyond, truly cultivating a cross-platform community. They’ve created multiple Twitter handles, a network of blogs, and are very active on Facebook.Dell is also one of the few companies to publicly state that they created a return on investment from Twitter. Apparently, Dell’s social media efforts help create “$1 million in revenue“.
  • I never expected to be writing good things about Comcast, but because of Frank Eliason things have changed. Frank is the man behind @comcastcares, a Twitter account setup to help Comcast users in need.Comcast has found a way to offer exceptional customer service to their consumers, but the thing that really makes them stand out is how well they monitor discontent. Complain about Comcast and you can bet you’ll hear from @comcastcares to see if they can help.
  • He said: “Dare2share is an exciting collaborative podcasting tool that encourages the building of professional online communities throughout the company.“It allows people to view, share and rate learning content and knowledge - quickly, easily and without the need for any lengthy training.”Identify expertsSponsored by BT learning and development, dare2share has already been rolled out to 10,000 BT people after a successful pilot - but is open to the whole global BT community.Adam said: “The content consists of podcasts - both video and audio - plus detailed supporting information and collaborative functionality.“It provides a feature-rich social learning environment - and offers enormous potential in allowing BT people to build their networks across the company and identify experts they wouldn’t otherwise find.“It will save BT time and money, too, since individuals can quickly get out messages and learning to other people in an engaging and interesting format.”The team is running a simple competition to get as many people “daring2share” as possible. Adam said: “Entering is easy - just upload your podcasts, rate your colleagues’ podcasts and start discussions around content.“We’re offering two camcorders and four webcams as prizes in various categories - you’ll find all the details online.”
  • We are seeing 2 types of behaviours of companies:Those who close down the access to social media (esp. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.)But sheep do escape... And then what.Thos who leave it open and have no rulesSetting up for disaster and discussions after the fact
  • How you could your or your company’s social profile look like?
  • Myth #1: I need to be a great writer! Wrong… you don’t need to be a great writer to be a blogger, you may need to be a great writer to be a reporter for newspapers, or interviewer for magazines but not for blogging. What you need to be good at for blogging is sharing your own ideas and being passionate about what you do and what you know. Look at me, English is my second language, it’s bloody hard for me to write in English (I’m really more comfortable with talking in English) yet I write blog posts. Let’s put it this way, Do you need to be a great writer to write an email? NO, you don’t need to be a great writer to write a blog either.Myth #2: I don’t have the technical knowledge! OK, let me share a little bit of the Internet history with you. Back in 1999 if you wanted to build an online page you had to know HTML, image editing, working with FTP servers, may be a little bit programming and more and more. But many people didn’t learn all those things so what happened? programmers started to program new softwares called Content Management System (CMS) which WordPress is one of them. With CMS you don’t need to have any technical knowledge. you write the post on your computer, login to your blog and copy it here. That’s that easy! So don’t worry and start blogging.Myth #3: It has to be perfect! Honestly it doesn’t need to be perfect, your blog should be good, if you can make it better, it’s better. But as long as you can share your ideas on it, it’s ready to be launched. Sure with a better design it looks better, but you can’t afford to wait for perfect. Having a blog is an ongoing process. You always have to update, optimize and upgrade it. But don’t forget you can start even with a default WordPress template.Below are 6 common blogging mythsBlogging is expensiveWith the availability of open source blogging platforms such as WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger, you can start and enjoy an income-generating blog without spending a dollar for it. Even plugins and performance booster tools for blogs are free! However, if you want to upgrade your blogs, you may have to spend some cash on site upgrades to adhere major search engines’ demands in crawling and indexing.Blogging is only for computer geeksYou can be a computer geek by devoting your entire life to blogging, but you don’t need to be a computer geek to blog. I know a lot of bloggers who use only Microsoft Word and basic Web knowledge to achieve promising site rank and ROI for their blogs.Blogging is only for introvertsThis is completely wrong. Blogging can be used to create networks and connect to people outside the realms of your home. It is actually a method that can transform introverts to extroverts.Blogging is a boring jobBlogging only becomes boring if you blog about mundane topics. However, if you make use of its power to reach other countries and people outside your life and network, you can actually find blogging as a very enjoyable lifestyle.Blogging is only for degree holders and academically gifted peopleThis is a fallacy. There are popular blogs on the Web that are owned by college dropouts, jobless individuals, and has-been superstars. Blogging requires creativity and knowledge, not impressive resumes.Blogging is only for popular peopleThe truth is that there are few popular people who blog. Famous people are often too busy with their schedules to spend some time just writing a sensible post. The more beautiful truth is that blogging has brought fame to many ordinary people. In fact, many people put up blogs in the hopes of becoming a celebrity on the Web.
  • Corporations are using blogs for many different reasons, including communications, lead generation, brand building, marketing, and customer service.  The analysts at eMarketer acknowledge that the use of “faster” forms of social media communication and marketing (such as Twitter and Facebook) have caused the growth of more time-intensive blogging activities to slow down.  However, corporations still publish blogs because they deliver a few benefits that other social media tools don’t provide, such as greater control, integration, more in-depth content publishing, and more varied opportunities for creative communications and marketing.

  • How to market your company using SlideShareby ASHWAN on JULY 23, 2008ShareA few companies have used SlideShare to put up shows about their products and services or about themselves. In many cases these are beginning to show up in web search results too, and are a valuable first point of contact with customers.Considering that, we thought it would be a good idea to share this list of tips and best practices to market your company effectively using SlideShare.Create an account with your company name on SlideShare and upload your public presentations there.Accompany every press release with a presentation on SlideShare with more information and links.Marketing reports or survey results (in PDF) form can be uploaded to SlideShare too. Alternatively, a well made digest or summary of the report as a presentation would work very well on SlideShare.Like anywhere else, good content is important. A crisp, well made presentation that stands on it’s own will easily garner views and also encourage users to share the show on their own blogs or sites.Put up any presentations made at conferences on SlideShare. If you put them up prior to the speaking slot you can include the link in the conference deck. This will encourage your audience to look it up and possibly forward it around to their friends.SlideShare supports clickable URLS, so put a call-to-action or a URL at the end of your deckAdd an email address also since that’s clickable too. Just be sure to keep your links in the center of the slide since SlideShare uses the left and right edges for navigation within the show.Use an informative title for your slide show. Not only is this useful for being found on SlideShare, it’s also indexed by search engines.SlideShare allows you to “tag” shows with keywords relevant to the content, be sure to use the right keywords as this is an effective way of your presentation being found by someone browsing the sitePay attention to comments left on your slide shows as some of your customers are going to leave their thoughts, feedback or queries thereCreate a detailed profile of yourself or your company, many viewers of your shows are going to look at your slide space and leave messages or send private messages from there.You can embed presentations on the company blog or company website either individually, or using the SlideShare widgetCreate an “event” on SlideShare for the conference you are attending or organising. Encourage others at the conference to post their presentations to the event on SlideShareCreate a group on SlideShare for your company or technology or product. The group can then become a meeting point for your company and/or its customers.Lastly, if necessary, SlideShare offers useful privacy features so that you can share a slide show only to certain contacts or through a secret URL which you mail to people.

  • How do I market my business on Flickr?First, let me emphasize that it’s against the Terms of Use to “exploit for any commercial purposes” the Flickr/Yahoo service. Posting a photo specifically for the purposes of advertising your company, your products/services, etc., would be against the TOS and would turn off the Flickr community.That said, by being a smart and active contributor to the Flickr community, your business (web site) can get indirect marketing exposure via Flickr. Here’s how:1.) Use your web site address as your Flickr screen name. Your screen name will be attached to every photo you upload, every message you post in a Group discussion — everything you do on Flickr. Let your screen name advertise your web site URL. The photo below, for example, is a picture I took at the SEW Live event in Seattle in May. The two circles in the upper right show where “” appears. And with each photo you upload, you can add “tags” (or keywords) that describe the photo, and a description of the image — these are both opportunities to mention your business name and web site address. (I didn’t use the tags or description to mention SBS in this example.)Click the thumbnail for a larger version(link will open in a new browser window)2.) Use your Flickr profile to advertise your company, products, services, etc. In your profile, Flickr asks you to describe yourself and lets you give your web site name and address. Use this to describe who you are and what your business does, but keep the sales pitch to a minimum. Make it informational instead. You can also upload a “Buddy Icon” in the profile system. Make your company logo your Flickr icon.Here’s what the Small Business SEM Flickr profile looks like. (link will open a new browser window)3.) Upload quality photos of your products/services, and things related to your business. A general contractor, for example, would upload photos of homes or commercial buildings you’ve built. A winery would upload photos of grape harvest, the winemaking process, and even your tasting room and close-ups of your wine bottles. A caterer would upload photos of events you’ve worked — your staff, the food, the overall presentation, etc. A woodworker would upload photos of items you’ve made, your workshop, etc.4.) Write appropriate text for each photo, but avoid the hard sell. As mentioned above, you can give a name and write a description for each photo you upload. You should describe the photo accurately — i.e., “This is a bottle of our newest release, 2005 Chardonnay….” — but avoid any hard sell copy. Remember to keep the focus on the photography, not the sales pitch. You can also add “tags” to describe each photo, and you should include things like your company name and web site address in the tags. If you rely on local traffic, the tags should include the city names where you do business (but don’t overdo it).5.) Find and join appropriate groups and share your photos in those groups. There are groups on Flickr for just about anything you can imagine. Run a pet store? There are plenty of pet-related groups. Run an antique car shop? There are several groups about classic cars. Make homemade candles? Several groups for you. Are you getting the picture? (pun intended!) Oh, and be sure to find and join any groups related to your location — search on your city name, nearby city names, and your state. When appropriate, posting photos and joining discussions in those groups will allow you to reach a local audience.6.) Link prominently from your web site to your Flickr photostream. There are two reasons for this: First, because people visiting your web site are likely to be interested in your photos, too. Who doesn’t appreciate good pictures? Plus, some of your visitors are probably already Flickr users, and they might welcome to the chance to add you to their “contact list.” (Return the favor if they do!) The second reason is that search engine crawlers should follow a prominent link from your web site to your Flickr photos, and when that happens, you have more potential matches for search engine users. (Yes, Flickr photo pages are crawled by Google, Yahoo, MSN, and, too.)7.) Take part in the Flickr community. By this, I mean the following:Comment on other photos you like, whether they’re related to your business or not.Add great photos to your “Favorites” list.Take part in discussions in your groups (but avoid the hard-sell tactics).Remember that every time you do one of these things, your screen name will show — with your comment, with your discussion posts, etc. And if your screen name is your URL, that’s free advertising.Free Bonus Hint: Be smart and creative about this. If you find a photo from another user in your area of interest, and that photo is getting a lot of views and comments, add your own comment to get your screen name in front of a lot of eyeballs. (Just make sure it’s a legitimate comment on the photo, and as always, don’t comment to promote your business.)How NOT to market your business on Flickr…Don’t spam.There’s no need to stuff linked keywords into your photo descriptions, into the comments you leave on other’s photos, etc.There’s no need to plaster your URL all over the photos you upload.There’s no need to post advertising messages in discussion groups.etc.If you try these, all you’ll do is turn-off the Flickr community … when the whole point is turn them on.ConclusionThese ideas are, admittedly, probably not helpful if you run an insurance agency, if you’re an accountant, or if you’re in a service industry like those. But if there are any visual elements to your company, or the products and services you offer, Flickr offers a new avenue for spreading the word about who you are and what you do.When used properly, Flickr can be an effective tool for marketing your small business. The key is to be an active and responsible member, and avoid using hard-sell tactics in your photos, comments, discussions, etc. Most important: Respect the Flickr system and community.One more thing…Again, this may not apply to everyone reading, but be sure to search Flickr for photos (from other users) related to your business and products. You may find that your customers have already been uploading photos — hopefully ones that paint you in a positive light. But they might also be posting photos of the crap packing job you did when shipping them your Green Widget, or of the dirty bathroom in your restaurant. In addition to marketing, Flickr can sometimes be a good avenue for monitoring what some customers are saying about you.Read more:

  • Here are reasons that I’ve came up.1. Connecting with customersThis is the  main reason why you should use twitter for your business. You will be able to connect with your customers because they themselves are using twitter. Twitter has become a daily routine where people log onto it every single day, some log onto twitter the first thing they wake up even before brushing their teeth. If you have an unsatisfied customer you will hear them on twitter. This will help your company to help them. On the coming days I’ll be going deeper about how you can “spy” on tweets using free tools like twitter search.2. BrandingYou don’t have to be a big brand like Dell, Nike, Starbucks to brand yourself on twitter. You can be an average joe and brand yourself on twitter. For me if your company is not recognize then you need to get a PERSONAL account. Why? Firstly nobody want to talk to a LOGO unless its a famous brand. Everyone wants to connect with a person and not a bot.3. Customers feedbackOnce you have connected with your customers you will for sure be getting feedback on how you can improve your product, your services and maybe even improve your customers service. Listening to them will help you in the future.4. MarketingOne of the reasons to use twitter is you get to market your product or services to more people and the best part about that is its FREE. You don’t have to pay (Unless if you plan to hire someone to run your twitter account).5. NewsYou can also give latest updates on twitter about your company by tweeting. Here is one done by JetBlue Airways on their twitter account @jetblue6. Give away coupon codes and promotionsYou can also tweet about new deals and coupons codes to help give your company the extra boost. What everyone love include me is getting a good deal. Weather its a promotional lunch set, if its cheap. I want it. Here is  a tweet on Dell is doing it.For me you don’t have to be like dell in order to do this. You can have a normal business as well. If you have a restaurant and you have build loyal or new followers in your place you can send out tweet like “Having a special set lunch this weekend.” or something like that. They can tweet you for more information regarding that. I am going to teach you how you can get local twitterers.7. Twitter is ViralIf you’ve have succeeded gaining some popularity with your twitter account you will know how viral twitter can be. This will be part of your marketing strategies that you can use in the future. Dell have succeeded in making their tweets viral with their promotion tweets.8. Spying on competitionDid you know you can spy on competition too? Best part about this and spying on customers is that its FREE using twitter search. You can not only read what customers are talking about you but you can also read what customers are talking about your competition. If your competition is not doing anything with their customers complaints. Then what happens if you (the savior) suddenly tweet them “hey I heard you have a problem with…..” Just an example.9. Increase SalesTwitter can help you increase sales and make PROFIT. Dell is one of the company that have increase their sales on twitter. How much sales? Imagine $6.5 million in sales as reported at mashable10. Brand loyaltyAt the end of the day, once you have engaged, helped your customers (your followers) on twitter. They will be loyal to your brand for a long time. This will be talked more in the future post.
